    Vernors Ginger Ale was supposedly created in the 1860s and is still sold by Dr. Pepper/Snapple group.
    Coca-Cola still uses coca in their formula. They are the largest users of legal coca in the US today, imported by Stepan Bros Co.

    Coca-Cola contained coca, not cocaine. Cocaine is manufactured from coca, which is widely drunk in Bolivia much as coffee or mate is in other countries. There is a coca soft drink called (ready?) Coca-Colla in Bolivia.

    Red bull was invented because in Thailand truckers were falling asleep on long drives. Nobody ever does the Polar beverage company. Coca Cola stole their polar bear idea.
